Points of Light is partnering with Village Capital to launch the first start up accelerator program focused on civic ventures. The program will include mentoring, entrepreneur education, peer support and networking.

Together, these approaches offer specialized ways to help social entrepreneurs launch and scale their ideas. These ideas become programs, social enterprises, nonprofits and joint ventures–each aimed at putting people at the center of change and advancing civic engagement around the world.
